Damn! is that the hub your bike came with?
Whoa, I hadn't looked at the pics before replying
Common prob. If you are sure the wheel is centered, re-adjust the caliper. Maybe the wheel wasn't centered originally when the caliper was adjusted.
So the rotor is rubbing the fork leg? No rubbing prior?

Yup, it's centered, nothing changed. I had noticed something but not that it was killing the fork. Today, different story. All I did was remove the 9MM QR, replace tire, out back on. When I start to tighten the quick release the stanchions pull together, but that side seems to come in more/crooked. Another thing to note, on the hub, there's a knob sticking out that seems to push into the fork leg like its been ground out; instead of staying in place.

Seems like you're missing an end cap or some critical piece. You shouldn't pull the stanchions together when you tighten the QR. And you have far too many threads exposed on the end of the skewer, which leads me to believe something is amiss.
Can you take pictures of the hub off the bike?
Hub's missing a part. That QR has way too many threads showing.
One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??
Yup, missing cap. +1 for Lynx's warning and reccomendations.
In the 1st and 2nd pic, you can see very clearly that the fork is clamped directly onto the axle that protudes from the hub. Normally there is a cap there that slides onto the axle.
I hope the axle end and the fork dropout are OK, because those are not designed to be clamped like that. The axle end has a much smaller clamping surface than the end cap that should have been on it. Better check for damage before putting on a new end cap and riding the bike.
I'm also guessing this is the piece I need?
